1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A parallel-plate capacitor has a plate area of .3m^2 and a plate separation of .1mm. If the charge on ech plate has a magnitude of 5*10^-6C then the force exerted by one plate on the other has what magnitude 2. Relevant equations Q=E Ԑ A F=qE 3. The attempt at a solution so to solve for E i used the first equation: 5*10^-6C=E*(10^-11)(.2) and got E=1.67*10^6 V/m First i want to make sure that i am moving in the right direction and also do i use 5*10^-6C as my q in the second equation?
